Lean Supply Chain


Much has been done to integrate Lean thinking on the factory floor.  Once these operations are stabilized and Lean knowledge becomes more advanced, opportunities to develop Lean Value Streams that are linked across the supply chain become evident and within reach.  A complete Lean Supply Chain is ultimately a system of codependent and interrelated divisions working together to achieve supply chain objectives. Furthermore, a Lean Supply Chain is not intended solely for manufacturing companies, but is equally relevant and important within any business wanting to streamline processes by eliminating waste and non-value-added activities.  While each company or division across an enterprise has their own business interests, there is no doubt that unlocking the value at each link in the chain leads to better service for the end customer.

This course examines how a well-designed supply chain should operate to deliver good quality products efficiently to the customer while minimizing waste.  With a focus on how to design a Lean Supply Chain that optimizes the complex and seemingly conflicting requirements that today’s manufacturers face, the course leads to an appreciation for the fact that global sourcing does not have to forgo the benefits of Lean.  All organizations striving to implement Lean benefit from a logical approach to creating and handling their supply chain.
